german netlabel specialising in electronica, soundscapes and cinematic music.
Subsource offers contemporary electronic music in an unconventional form: you can download or stream it directly from the internet for free. You may want to sort Subsource into drawers like experimental electronic music, ambient music, refreshing beats, noise, glitch or something but there are no specific style directions, except perhaps 'ambient music' ... but everything can be ambient music depending on the environment. So Subsource don't want to make a stylized list of its music. Each release was made out of a specific mood and environment and it shows you this environment while you listen to it.
Subsource is splitted into two parts:
First there are subsource releases called soundscapes. Independent musicians and sound artists ('subsource scientists') are releasing their albums and EPs in this section.
Then there are instant DJ Sets or submixes. You will find a great collection of DJ Sets on subsource playing only free music. Compiled and mixed by Digital Jockes using software instead of turn tables. These sets may give you an overview about (free) electronic music or they are simply made for awake, dance or sleep with.
Subsource is now located in NÃ¼rnberg / Germany and is managed by Dirk Murschall aka [in]anace since 1999.
